WarnerMedia’s new streaming platform HBO Max, due to launch in early 2020, has scored U.S. rights to the comedy series “Starstruck” from Edinburgh Comedy Festival honoree Rose Matafeo and Avalon Television.
The six-episode series follows a young woman in London who works two dead-end jobs and has to navigate the awkward morning after when she discovers the complications of accidentally sleeping with a movie star.
The series will air in the U.K. on BBC Three who commissioned the series with HBO Max hopping onboard and set to air it in the United States simultaneously.
HBO Max is quickly building up a roster of original series including Greek mythology drama “Circe,” a “Gossip Girl” revival, the film tie-in “Dune: The Sisterhood,” the Greg Berlanti produced “The Flight Attendant,” noir drama “Tokyo Vice,” the Anna Kendrick-led anthology “Love Life,” the limited series “Station Eleven,” an animated “Gremlins” series and a second season of “Doom Patrol”.
